Re: EU seems to be in danger...

Actually, come to think of it.. Would that be made into a sketch in an absurdist program on tv (a translator on the phone to make communication between a midwife and a woman who is giving birth possible), it would not be accepted because it would not be politically correct.

Ironic isn't it?

Fine, you wanna close your eyes that's one thing. Problem is that that rt article is a combination of different 4 rt articles. Those 4 different rt articles all link to local (Swedish, UK, French etc) newspapers and reports. So they only gathered what was already publicized by Western entities.
